Trusted Shops Reviews

Valdespino Pedro Ximénez El Candado is a sweet wine produced by Bodega Valdespino with the Pedro Ximénez variety in the D.O. Jerez-Xérès-Sherry , in Cádiz, Spain.

To make the Valdespino Pedro Ximenez El Candado wine, before being harvested, the Pedro Ximénez clusters undergo the traditional “asoleo” process where the grapes are exposed to the sun to dry naturally, causing an extraordinary sugar concentration and giving the wine its unique personality.

The grapes end up with less liquid, which is why there is less, slightly coloured must from pressing. Alcoholic fermentation is halted by adding wine alcohol, preparing it for years of oxidative aging in American oak, using the well-known Jerez system of criaderas and soleras. This gives an intense and fruity sweet wine.

Sherry and wines from Jerez are probably Spain’s biggest contribution to the world of wine. Unique and special, there is nothing else like them in the world. A great diversity of Sherry wine is produced in DO Jerez-Sherry-Manzanilla de Sanlúcar, everything from sweet wines to fortified wines. Sweet wines are divided between Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, depending on the variety used during production. Concerning fortified wines, there is a large range including Finos, Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, Medium, Cream and Palo Cortado, classified depending on the result of the ageing process under the ´velo flor´. A unique trait of these wines is the ageing process using the Solera Method, a system using various barrels from different vintages. The system uses stacked barrels, where a portion of a barrel’s contents is extracted and mixed with the lower barrel, with the barrel then filled with the contents of the upper barrel. Thus, the new wine is gradually coming to be thanks to the age of the rest of the content of screeds.
